Senate Bill 1796, which was passed back in March 2022, would have changed how alimony is paid if it was signed into law.

This Bill would have also codified a 50-50 presumption of timesharing into Florida Law, which would not have protected the best interests of children in some cases.

This past Friday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vetoed this Bill, just as The Family Law Section of the Florida Bar had urged him to do.

The Bill had called for the court to put an end to permanent alimony payments, and would allow for the party paying alimony to terminate alimony payments upon retirement.

DeSantis objected to the bill explaining, “it would unconstitutionally impair vested rights under certain preexisting marital settlement agreements,” he wrote in an official letter.

A divorce case can often take months to conclude, therefore temporary court orders may be requested for certain issues such as support while the divorce case is pending.

Whether the non-wage-earning or lower-wage-earning spouse will be able to survive economically during the proceedings is often determined at the first hearing on temporary relief.

Alimony will be awarded if need and ability to pay can be proved.

Temporary relief orders are often entered by judges after short hearings with limited evidence.

If further discovery reveals that a temporary support order is inequitable or based on improper calculation, any inequity can usually be resolved in the final judgment, after a full and fair opportunity to be heard.
